Tips for Teen Driver Safety Week

About a quarter of the teen drivers involved in fatal crashes had been drinking and thanks to a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, we also know that nearly 60% of teen crashes are caused by distraction.

In fact, driving teen fatalities are down 51 percent. This is all to decrease fatal crashes which is the leading cause of death among teens. Klauer led a naturalistic teenage driving study which discovered that novice teen drivers are involved in four times as many crash and near-crash events during the first 18 months of licensure.

-Every 15 Minutes focuses on high school juniors and seniors, challenging them to think about drinking, driving, personal safety, the responsibility of making mature decisions, and the impact their decisions have on family, friends, and many others. National rates also followed a similar pattern, with the number of teens involved in deadly crashes dropping almost 43 percent. "It will take a holistic approach that combines education, experiential learning, and enforcement to change the driving culture to one that is distraction-free". AAA also offers membership discounts for new teen drivers to help keep them safe on the road in case of an emergency.
